Senior Mia Wrey never ran cross country before this season. She was a three year soccer player at Ballard High School. She thought she’d give cross country a try this year and try she did! She progressed throughout the season knocking nearly 2 minutes off some of her earlier times by the end of the season. Mia qualified for state last weekend and competed today in Pasco at the state competition. Mia ran a person best time of 19:12.8 and placed 30thin state as the lone Ballard runner! Here’s a listing of all racers: http://www.jcrawford.net/girls4a12.html Congratulations Mia!

Ballard sent eight girls to the SEA-King District 2 champions this weekend at the University of Washington pool: Luisa Chan, Tiara Adler, Catherine Canetti, Madeline Manalo, Joy Jaeger, Claire Comiskey, Katie Harrylock, and Tianna Lee. It’s tough to make it to state—you either have to have a top three time at the district meet or swim a state qualifying time. The girls competed well with many setting personal best. Junior Luisa Chan swam the 100 breast with a state qualifying time of 1:09.93. She gets a trip to state next weekend!
